7. The context-specific menus for data tracks are still there, just hidden by default. Click the down arrow on the title bar of the track to access menu options for changing the way the track is displayed and exporting data for that track ("Save track data").
"About this track" gives some additional information about a particular track such as the track type and category.
"Pin to top" causes that track to always be displayed directly beneath the header area at the top of the browser window. By default tracks are displayed in the order they are turned on but they can be re-ordered by clicking and dragging the track title bar up or down. When a line appears in the place you want the track to appear, release the mouse button and the track is dropped in that location.
"Edit Config" allows the user to directly edit the configuration script for a particular track. This is not recommended for most users.
Individual tracks can be turned off in three ways: by selecting "Delete
track" in the context-specific menu, by clicking the X to the left of
the track name, or by unchecking the box in the "Available Tracks" list
in the side bar of the browser window.
"Save Track Data" opens a popup window with options for viewing and/or saving the data for a particular track. Select to save either the data for the particular region you are viewing or, for some tracks, the entire dataset for that track. The latter option is not available for large datasets such as the strain-specific variant tracks. For this data, RGD has vcf files available on our ftp site. In the "Save Track Data" popup select a file format, edit the name of the file, if desired, and choose whether to simply view the file online or save it to your local system.
Three "Display modes" are available: "Normal" is the default view. "Compact" reduces the height of each object in the track and turns off the display of object labels so that the height of the track is proportionally reduced even though each object can still be seen separately. "Collapse" moves all objects to a single line on the track which in some cases results in overlap of individual objects.
Object labels are automatically displayed when the view is zoomed in sufficiently. Uncheck the "Show labels" box to turn them off.
